County employees Deyan Bunjevic and Ken Stahli check over ballots one by one to determine the intent of the voters. As of Sunday night, Maricopa County reported nearly 100,000 provisional ballots that had not been counted because names and addresses on ID did not match county records, with an additional 89,000 which had to be copied by hand because voters used devices other than pens to mark them, making the ballots unreadable by the machines. It could be a week before the outcome of some races are known.
